We hired Ruben for our destination wedding in San Diego. I had no idea he would knock it out of the park. He was able to perform every song (both American and Punjabi/Bollywood) live on the saxophone. I had a special request to merge two songs as part of my bridal entrance and again, Ruben delivered. He showed up very early the day of the wedding to set up and started playing earlier than expected and he also stayed later for cocktail and finished up strong. He was honestly the best addition to our special day and I am so glad we stumbled across him. I would recommend his services for any event in the future. Our guests at the wedding were asking for his card. :)
